Program highlights

Mayo Clinic’s Medical and Surgical Gynecology Physician Assistant Fellowship in Arizona is a comprehensive 12 month didactic and clinical program allowing for exposure to all sub-specialties in gynecology. Our program is the first GYN-only fellowship in the country. During PA school, the required OB/GYN rotation for most students is focused on obstetrics with little experience in GYN. This fellowship will provide you with the knowledge and proficiency in all the GYN sub-specialties preparing you for a skilled career in gynecology. The fellowship includes training in medical gynecology, urogynecology, gynecology oncology, and minimally invasive surgery.
